Samsung Galaxy S22: Less Glass And More Plastic

Upcoming S22 may have a plastic back

Starting with the Galaxy A series, the plastic back has now also spread to devices like the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S21. With the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series, the South Korean company could go one step further in the direction of plastic and use even less glass in its products.

Samsung calls the plastic “reinforced polycarbonate” which ends up leaving this phone more durable as well. Plus, the chassis is still made from metal, so you won’t lose all of that premium feel.

According to a report from Korea, Samsung is said to have a “brand new processing technology” with which one would like to manufacture the back of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus. The report mentions that the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus will have a plastic back and only the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a glass back. At the moment, only the normal Galaxy S21 uses a polycarbonate back, while both the Galaxy S21 Plus and the Galaxy S21 Ultra use Gorilla Glass Victus.

The reason for this selection of plastic back is still not known. Samsung may want the base model to be affordable. This also raises a few questions for me when it comes to sustainability. On one hand, Samsung says they want to leave out the power supply in order to be more environmentally friendly, on the other hand they are now putting more emphasis on plastic in the devices. Somehow that calculation doesn’t make much sense.
